Handbooks and Manuals by Dan Hughes

"Dan writes for people who don't like to read." - comment from a customer.

"Hi Dan, I started reading your book late in the evening, fell asleep on the sofa,  woke up around 3 A.M. and finished another chapter.  I love it, but now my marriage might be in jeopardy.  My wife said no treasure hunting book is worth sleeping on the sofa for unless I plan on sleeping there every night.  Any chance that you will author a marriage study guide?!" -  Larry Speed, West Des Moines, IA

"Hey Dan read your managing softball book, one of the best books I ever read....my team is better than ever, started the season 3-0 so far and just crushing teams, plus I'm a lot happier as a manager. Thanks for the book" - Francisco, Austin, TX.

"As an Air Force Instructor Navigator and for 4 years an Operational Test Director I have written, reviewed and edited many technical papers and lesson plans concerning Radar,  Loran, and Inertial guidance systems.  I wish could have done half as well as you have done with this Metal Detecting Manual." - from a retired Air Force officer.


The Metal Detecting Manual - Selecting a detector, tricks of getting permission to hunt prime areas, the tools you need for maximum results and efficiency, getting maximum depth, research secrets, relic hunting, beach hunting, coinshooting, cache hunting, gold hunting, treasure clubs, the most extensive list ever of places to hunt, and a whole lot more.  My best-selling book.  

Managing and Coaching Adult Slowpitch Softball - The only instruction book offering complete coverage of park district, church, and recreational league slowpitch softball for adults. Includes position-playing tips, hitting tips, pitching tips, sponsor-finding, fund raising, and detailed duties of the manager and coach.  Easy to read, fun and informative.  There are several free softball articles at the bottom of this page.

Tips, Tricks, and Secrets for Radio Disc Jockeys - This short comb-bound manual tells you what to say (and just as important, what NOT to say) when you're on the air.  I taught radio broadcasting for 26 years, and this is a written version of my most popular lecture.  Read it in an hour, use it for the rest of your career.
Note:  The above manuals are available ONLY from my website.  They are not sold in stores, and Amazon and other online booksellers do not have them and cannot get them, unless they buy them from me at the same price you pay.

Dan Hughes Autographs - My other business.  Thousands of autographs in all fields, most at below-retail prices.

Treasure Magazines - Over 400 magazines for sale, most from 1970s and 1980s, free shipping.

Dan's Miracle Diet (not a sales pitch!) - On this diet I dropped from 185 lbs to 149 lbs in three months.  Here's how.

And be sure to read my Christmas Newsletter!  For those of you who are sick and tired of family newsletters bragging of heroic exploits and superior children, read MINE for a different outlook....
